Hollis Conway, a decorated Olympic athlete, will be the featured motivational speaker at the Welcome Supper of the All American National Junior Brahman Show in West Monroe, Louisiana on July 5, 2016, sponsored by the Brahman Foundation.
Hollis found comfort and stability in athletics during high school, and quickly discovered his talents for the high jump. He quickly rose in the ranks to become one of the best high jumpers in the United States. At the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, Korea, he won the silver medal in high jump and he won the bronze medal in high jump at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.
Since he retired from jumping in 2001, he has taken the same dedication he used to become a successful Olympic athlete to help others rise to the next level as a motivational speaker.
Conway is a dedicated husband, father and ordained minister. Conway has authored two books, Yes I Can and Grasshopper. He is also the president of a non-profit motivational speaking company, Overcoming Obstacles, Inc.
